LA JOYA — La Joya Juarez-Lincoln and McAllen High’s girls soccer teams met on the pitch for the second time this season Monday.

Just like the first clash of District 30-6A giants, the match did not disappoint. Even with a single goal in 80 minutes, the tempo was fast-paced and the skill level was an indication that RGV girls soccer is entering a new echelon.
